Chapter 1032: Chasing Down Su Yan!

Now the tables were completely turned. Su Yan fled, and Meng Hao chased her. 500 black beetles soared through the Ruins of Immortality like a black windstorm. All of them were at least a half a meter long or so, and a few of the largest were more than three meters long.

500 black beetles made a small-scale sea of insects. Although you couldn’t say that they blotted out the sky, they did cause everything to shake, and sent endless ripples out as they chased after Su Yan.

If it were just a matter of black beetles, Su Yan would have numerous ways of dealing with them and escaping. However… she wasn’t just being chased by black beetles; she was being chased by Meng Hao.

Meng Hao sat cross-legged on one of the larger beetles, eyes flickering coldly. His gaze only continued to get colder as he looked at Su Yan. After all, she was the one who had ruined his plan to harvest medicinal plants.

Not only did she attempt to steal his business, but she ended up making it impossible for him to even harvest the medicinal plants at all. Then she used the pursuit of the black beetles as a tool to try to kill him. Most unforgivable was that she had planned to take advantage of his misfortune to extort his wealth.

It had been a long time since Meng Hao had been victim of such plotting. Not even that old fox Fang Shoudao aggravated him as much as this. Some people might prefer to treat women with extra tenderness, but Meng Hao completely ignored that. With a cold harrumph, he extended his right hand and waved his finger toward Su Yan.

It was none other than the Eighth Demon Sealing Hex!

Even as Su Yan shot forward anxiously, she suddenly trembled. Her cultivation base completely stopped moving, and she screeched to a halt in midair.

Next, Meng Hao’s Immortal meridians exploded with power, and his cultivation base surged. 123 Blood Demon heads appeared, roaring as they charged toward Su Yan.

Su Yan’s eyes widened, and she bit down hard on the tip of her tongue. Pain flooded through her along with cracking sounds as she broke free from Meng Hao’s Hexing magic. Then she turned, eyes flickering with fear, but more so, coldness.

Instead of trying to evade the 123 Blood Demon heads, she breathed in deeply, absorbing the power of Heaven and Earth. Then she lifted her right foot up and stamped it down violently, striding in Meng Hao’s direction.

That first step caused the void to tremble. Her second step caused everything in the area to shake. The third step caused fissures to crack the ground for 3,000 meters in every direction.

Meng Hao’s eyes widened with shock at the sight of this pink-robed young woman’s divine ability. She took only three steps, but those three steps caused her energy to surge. Meng Hao’s mind was sent reeling. Each of the steps seemed to trample upon his inner thoughts, causing his cultivation base to be thrown into chaos, and the flame of his life force to flicker.

Next, it was with a completely icy face that Su Yan took a fourth step. Rumbling echoed out everywhere!

When she took her fifth step, the entire world seemed to be turning inside out. Howling sounds could be heard in all directions. It was almost as if this area were turning into a different world altogether.

Her sixth step caused the crashing sound of thunder to fill the area for thousands of meters in each direction, along with an archaic, ancient aura.

Meng Hao’s magical Blood Demon heads all trembled, and were smashed to pieces by the surging energy.

It was in that moment that Su Yan took her seventh step!

“Seven Hellgod Steps!” 1 Su Yan cried out the words as she took the seventh step. The void shattered, and massive roaring sounds could be heard. A huge foot appeared up above, emanating shocking energy. A boundless feeling of savagery buffeted Meng Hao as the foot stamped down toward him.

The starry sky vibrated as Meng Hao looked up, eyes wide. Then, he performed a double-handed incantation gesture and pointed toward the huge foot.

“Paragon Bridge!” He let out a muffled growl as his 123 Immortal meridians, as well as his 33 Heavens, formed into the Paragon Bridge, which shot toward the foot.

A huge boom could be heard as the bridge and the foot collided. In that instant, the void around them seemed to be torn asunder. Boundless echoes rang out as the savage foot shattered, layer by layer, transforming into innumerable motes of light that then faded away.

The Paragon Bridge also trembled and collapsed into pieces.

Meng Hao trembled, and blood oozed out of the corners of his mouth. The pink-robed Su Yan’s face was ashen, and blood also oozed out her mouth as she looked at Meng Hao in shock.

She was in the Ancient Realm, and not an ordinary Ancient Realm cultivator at that. She had her own Dao; analogous to a true Immortal relative to the Immortal Realm, she was a Chosen of the Ancient Realm. Despite having only extinguished one Soul Lamp, she was by no means weak.

In her view, Meng Hao was only in the Immortal Realm, and even if he was at the peak of the Realm, he was still much weaker than her.

Before, she had merely feared his black beetles, and his mysterious, unfathomable spirit-immortal stones. Therefore, she attacked him, hoping to at least injure him, and thus be able to escape the black beetles.

However… in their first true interchange, she found that the two of them were relatively evenly matched. That filled Su Yan with fear, and she instantly fell back into retreat.

Meng Hao remained seated on the black beetle, eyes shining with a strange light at the fleeing Su Yan. Inwardly, his heart was pounding with anticipation, not because of Su Yan herself, of course, but because of… her divine ability!

Throughout his years of practicing cultivation, Meng Hao had acquired all sorts of divine abilities and magical techniques. Not many of them left him moved, or left him with a feeling that the technique was especially powerful…. However, during the times he had fought with Wang Mu and Wang Tengfei, they had used magical techniques of the Wang Clan which had left him shaken. In fact, because of those battles, he had even gotten the idea of trying to acquire some of those magical techniques. Unfortunately, the Wang Clan of the Ninth Mountain and Sea was one of the great clans, and to acquire their Daoist magics would be incredibly difficult.

Just now, the divine ability used by this pink-robed young woman also left him quite shaken.

“What Daoist magic was that? It only took seven steps to collapse my Paragon Bridge. Theoretically, it might have something to do with her cultivation base, or the fact that my understanding of the Paragon Bridge isn’t complete, meaning I can’t fully utilize it.

“However, that just goes to show that her Daoist magic of seven steps has its own unique aspects.” Meng Hao was lost in thought for a while as he chased Su Yan. Finally, he raised his right hand, performed an incantation gesture, and then pointed at her.

That wave of a finger caused his 123 Immortal meridians to materialize into a shocking Flying Rain-Dragon, which roared and beat its wings as it shot toward her in pursuit.

Su Yan’s face flickered as she saw the Flying Rain-Dragon bearing down on her. She gritted her teeth, performed an incantation gesture, and then placed her hands on top of her ears. Then she took a deep breath, using some unknown Daoist magic that caused the sounds of thunder to echo out. A huge wind kicked up, and Su Yan almost seemed to turn into a vortex that rapidly absorbed the power of Heaven and Earth.

Next… she suddenly turned her head toward Meng Hao, opened her mouth, and roared!

That roar was loud enough to tear open the Heavens and shred the earth!

The sound of it superseded all other sounds in the world. It shredded the void, causing a massive wind to kick up. Meng Hao started to tremble, and his black beetles began to rock back and forth. Blood oozed out of his ears, and his mind vibrated so intensely that it felt as if his head was about to explode.

That roar almost didn’t seem to be coming from Su Yan, but rather a giant. It was filled with intense savagery, and an unparalleled domineering air that seemed to defy the confines of destiny.

ROOOOOAAAARRRRRRRRRRRR!

Sound waves transformed into an attack that blasted toward Meng Hao. The result was that he was physically lifted up and pushed backward.

Su Yan coughed up a mouthful of blood; clearly utilizing this divine ability of roaring came at a great price. Her face was pale white as she sped forward anxiously.

“I just need to delay things a bit longer,” she muttered to herself, pushing for more speed. “If I can build up enough speed, I can break out of this place!”

Meng Hao finally stabilized himself, wiped away the blood that had oozed out of his ears, and looked at Su Yan as she fled. His eyes began to shine with an even more intense light.

“You can’t escape,” he said. “No matter what you say, I’m going to catch you!” His eyes flickered coldly, and his heart beat with excitement. As far as he was concerned, this pink-robed young woman was a treasure trove of divine abilities and Daoist magics.

It would be a big pain to try to acquire one of the Wang Clan’s Divine abilities. But he would be equally content to get his hands on some of this girl’s magic.

The wave of a hand caused all 500 of the black beetles to let out a collective roar. Their eyes were red with madness as they charged forth. Meng Hao’s cultivation base exploded with power. However, Su Yan was moving so quickly that she was already some distance off. Meng Hao snorted coldly, and extended his right hand, within which appeared the Lightning Cauldron. His eyes flickered with a Demonic glint as electricity danced about, and he vanished.

At the same time, Su Yan had almost built up enough speed to unleash another Daoist magic. Her body was beginning to grow blurry, and ripples were spreading out into the void. It was almost as if a tunnel were forming, a tunnel which she was just about to break into.

In that moment, however, countless sparks of electricity suddenly appeared all over her body. This development occurred too suddenly, and she could sense something happening that caused her face to fall.

Suddenly, she vanished, and Meng Hao appeared in her place. Of course, their speeds were different, so the moment Meng Hao appeared, the void tunnel promptly closed up.

At the same time, Su Yan reappeared in the spot Meng Hao had just been occupying… right in the middle of 500 black beetles!

The moment Su Yan appeared, the 500 black beetles immediately roared and shot toward her, radiating explosive ferocity. Su Yan was shocked to the core, and an expression of disbelief and shock instantly appeared on her face.

“That cauldron… how could it be here!?!? Is your surname Wang?” 2

Meng Hao’s eyes flickered almost imperceptibly, but he didn’t say anything. Instead, he sent his cultivation base rotating rapidly. The Essence of Divine Flame appeared, combined with the power of 33 Heavens, to shoot directly toward Su Yan.

The 500 black beetles all attacked with full force. In response, the shocked Su Yan performed an incantation gesture and waved her hand, causing divine abilities to shoot out. However, the Ghost Eyes on the backs of these black beetles began to glow, and were easily able to repel her attack, and even began to grow more ferocious.

As Meng Hao closed in, the Essence of Divine Flame caused Su Yan’s mind to spin. She was getting very anxious, but her face filled with determination as she raised her right hand. Instantly, light began to shine out from the creases in her palm, causing three palm prints to begin to appear in the air around her, surrounded by rumbling sounds.

However, before the palm prints could finish forming, the surrounding black beetles took advantage of the moment to attack. Su Yan fell back, blood spraying from her mouth.

It was at this point that, some distance behind Su Yan, two beams of light could be seen shooting through the Ruins of Immortality. Apparently sensing the ripples of magic, they headed toward Su Yan and Meng Hao.

Before the approaching figures could even be seen, a voice could be heard from them.

“My master is Meng Hao! Do you hear me? Meng Hao! He’s the ruler of the Ruins of Immortality, the Lord of the Nine Mountains and Seas! I was just joking with you, alright? Y-y-you… you’re being so petty! Why are you trying to kill us! You can’t blame me! Everything I did was taught to me by my master! Why don’t you go looking for him, alright? Aiya! How dare you attack us! Dammit! Lord Fifth is really getting pissed off! You just wait and see! My master definitely won’t let you off the hook!”

  1. The ability used by Su Yan is very similar in both name and function to one of the main abilities used by Su Ming, the main character of Er Gen’s Beseech the Devil. It doesn’t seem impossible that Su Yan could be somehow descended from or connected to Su Ming, in much the same way that the Wang Clan seems to be connected to Wang Lin from Renegade Immortal
  2. I saw a lot of questions on the Chinese internet about this part where Su Yan mentions the cauldron and asks if his surname is Wang. Apparently Wang Lin from Renegade Immortal had a cauldron with similar properties to this one. However, based on the answers I read in a few threads, that cauldron was clearly destroyed, so it couldn’t be the same one. However, this begs the question of why she would be saying something like this? There were various speculations about that too….

      1. Honestly, why can’t people be happy with it being done? They don’t have to give us the translations, and people like you whining that they’re too slow is one of the reasons Stellar Transformation had to go through so many translators.
        Be happy with what you get.

      2. You should be patient and thankful to Xian Ni’s translators, at least they choose the novel, though not able to keep up, they still put effort and working for it. At least, we’re able to know the existence of Wang Lin and it’s connection to Wang Clan in this novel ( unless you know how to read chinese ? then you might work out for it)

    1. He already flip-flopped. Talk about a joke.

      Goes to China: “America sucks!”

      Leaves China: “Well, America isn’t that bad after all.”

      LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

  1. hahahaha, poor li ling’er, now she realizes the torture Meng Hao had to deal with at one point, Also it makes me more and more amazed at how unfazed Meng Hao is by them now XD HELL, even blood demon was terrified of ultimate vexation noticing him!

  2. Ahh this duo of indestructible creatures.. They’re awesome. Btw, are they just as indestructible to people above the Immortal Realm? It would be cool if they are. I can’t stand the thought of them not being able to accompany Meng Hao because of the difference in power..

  3. Thanks for the translation!

    “The third step caused fissures to crack the ground for 3,000 meters in every direction.” Fissures to crack the ground? Weren’t they flying through the void.

  4. > She was in the Ancient Realm, and not an ordinary Ancient Realm cultivator at that. She had her own Dao; analogous to a true Immortal relative to the Immortal Realm, she was a Chosen of the Ancient Realm.

    This is the most interesting part for me, as I don’t think it’s been made clear before whether or not false immortals could enter the Ancient Realm. This seems to be saying that most Ancient Realm cultivators were not actually true immortals.

    1. I think it’s a similar deal to the Immortal Realm, where if one relies on others (probably Dao Realm Patriarchs) it’s FAR easier to get to that realm with almost no danger. I’d imagine that almost all True Immortals and the top tier of False Immortals would go down that route. It’s only the most determined and talented that would try to get to the Ancient Realm by themselves. There are too many Ancient Realm Cultivators imo for only True Immortals to have the ability to reach that realm.

      1. Just seeing how the fang clan built up many elders in the last couple tenthousand years, combined with there being only one 1000year period every 10000 years in which people can ascend to true immortals and that so far (at least known to us) mostly ONLY ONE chosen per sect ascended to true immortality, I guess there has to be a way for false Immortals to ascend to the ancient realm.
        Maybe when their Idol ascends to the ancient relam, they just tag along or something?

        Sry if my wording is kind of confusing, just about to head to bed.

      2. One problem is that the numbers for true immortals are kind of all over the place.

        We were told (back at Pill Demon’s ascension) that there was a *total* of less than 100 immortals for the entire 9M&S every 10k years.

        We’re also told that most of the powerful sects produce one or two true immortals each 10k period, with the Fang clan alone giving out Immortality Illumination Vines to the top three Chosen for free, and more available by paying merit points. Those numbers don’t really make sense unless the 9th M&S has an absurdly high percentage of those slots.

        But, yeah, with as many Ancient Realm cultivators as we see, the easiest answer is that there’s a path for false immortals to go further (and hopefully we’ll find out more details about that). The other, of course, is that we’re seeing an accumulation over a long period of time, and there’s a lot of people hanging around who still remember the days of Lord Li.

    2. Well, she colaborated her own Dao just like Meng Hao.. that makes her not an ordinary Ancient Realm expert. Those who colaborated their own Dao makes their cultivation easier to level up and be more powerful than ordinary or average cultivator. Though, the road to that is kinda hmmm… But, we can always expect that our beloved MC is much powerful.. it’s given.

      1. I don’t think she corroborated her own Dao. She *has* her own Dao, but all true immortals have that (false immortals have to conform to the Dao of whoever they get the Dao Fruit from).

  5. where the bag of cosmos ??

    in truth the bat from before deferent from the one in the miror the other colled him self as true spirit i think just like night from demon i sect and i also think he is the same as the immortal killing swords he is a sword and one of meng sword had longing for him , the deferent of power between him and night is becouse he was injured for years and he maybe return as powerfull as night in the future

    now meng hao could access the mirorr after become immortal like when he get 3th g deman sealing weapen why he didnt get the other and the jade of 3th g ??

    you think he will become the lord soon or after he become dao realm and when he become will kill all the ji clan or not ofcourse he will not stay alot of time as lord before Heads to the 33 sky??

    when he will meet his wife??

    the 4 and 3 and 2 and 1 g demon sealing jade in the 9 mountine or outside in onther mountine or with the outsiders ?? you think maybe the pargon women 4 or second g demon sealing ??

    i think when he become strong will make army of the demons in south heaven and his parents will become free

    the Immortal Meridians is just number or every one have special power ???
    trannon1 answear

    I won’t answer the spoilers, but for your last 2, I can answer.

    Immortal Meridians are like base stats and Techniques are like skills that do damage based on multiplying those base stats (E.g: Dimension Slash = 200x Attack Stat or something like that). Meaning, Meridians x Technique = Strength of Attack/Defense. That’s why Er Gen keeps mentioning people using the power of over xx Meridians, because they are boosting those Meridians with Techniques.

    The Paragon is not above Dao realm, the Dao realm is separated into different ranks. Just like Ancient realm has 13 Soul Lamps, Dao Realm has a few, and I believe Paragon is the 8th rank iirc.

    thank you
    but i mean other than that for example is the Meridians from blood demon have special power or the one from the 7th mountine have essence power or the dragon from demon sect or from fang clan the one Contain the blood of first g i mean any Meridians alone after 100 have special unique power for demon sealing power become 123 time stronger for the meridians doesn’t belong to him will make new divine ability or essence power or other ability??
    Ancient realm has 13 Soul Lamps ? I remember in the fang clan there people with 15 soul and for example meng hao have 33 soul i know 10 meridians for one soul and after 100 every one Equal to one soul but there something else the Natural rate about 13 soul that means above 100 meridians so there is other factor
    i don’t remember about Dao realm 8 level pargon but you think Ke Yunhai power Equal to 8 level dao realm when he was just quasi dao realm i think so becouse he created two quasi dao realm so i think the power in that era was deferent than now

    thank vexatory.

    the pargon women have power above dao realm ?? Ke Yunhai in demon sect was pargon like this women or like we understand the lord seals the dao realm in that era so no one can be dao realm?? but i dont think the earth leader of fang clan have power above Ke Yunhai !! ??

  6. Now that we know about the “33 Heavens” Tribulation Lightning makes MUCH more sense. I always wondered why, if the Heavens didn’t want one to reach certain levels (perfection) , it was still possible to survive the Tribulation, and why the Heavens didn’t just annihilate any who reached that level. Now it seems like they can’t adjust the power/take care of it themselves since the people in charge of the Heavens aren’t the Mountain Lords or an automated system, but are the 33 worlds that have sealed the Immortal Paragon World and if some of them come to the Mountains and Seas Realm they’ll be hunted and killed, combined with the fact that even if they have a solid foundation it would be a low chance of surviving to reach a higher realm, it just wasn’t worth it to do so.

  7. Meng Hao is totally acting like those Xianxia villains who greed from the Mc’s unique skill and arts.. and the strange thing was were actually rooting for him xD

  8. Woah… now I want to read the Xian Ni for it been mentioned a lot of times already in this novel because of the Wang Clan.

    Anyway… seriously? Lord Fifth, you will bring out the death of your master someday ??? That’s immoral you know. Thanks a bunch for the chapter ??

  9. Thanks for the chapter Deathblade, anonpuffs, Madam Deathblade, Courtrecords, GNE, Shu, JerryDaBaws, and Baby Deathblade! LOL when did Meng Hao take a disciple?!
